Welcome to Baker & McKenzie in Russia

Baker & McKenzie was the first international law firm to open an office in Moscow in 1989. Since then we have built a reputation as an experienced and reliable legal adviser, combining deep knowledge of local law with seamless execution across borders and practices.

We are one of the largest and strongest legal teams in Russia, and our antitrust, dispute resolution, employment, mergers and acquisitions, tax, real estate, and intellectual property practices are consistently ranked among the country’s leading. Our offices in Moscow and St. Petersburg have more than 120 qualified lawyers combined, including 27 partners providing sophisticated legal advice to leading Russian and international corporations, banks and financial institutions.



From 1 January 2014 new terms for notifying the Federal Migration Service (FMS) on the employment of highly qualified specialists come into force. The changes are set out in Order No. 372 of the FMS issued on 5 September 2013.
From July 2014, Russian law will introduce the concept of a bondholders’ representative, which is designed to perform a similar function to a trustee in a Eurobond transaction. These changes are enacted by Federal Law No. 210-FZ “On Amendments to the Federal Law ‘On the Securities Market’ and Certain Legislative Acts of the Russian Federation” which comes into effect on 1 July 2014.
On 20 August 2013, the Russian Supreme Arbitrazh Court published new guidelines regarding damages claims against chief executive officers, and management council and board members of Russian companies.
